I crave all things new and unusual and love saying "yes!"
I love to learn, make people laugh, and doing things that make everyone around/involved "feel alive". People's stories intrigue and invigorate me. I enjoy most humor, from puns to slapstick, and the ironic to the absurd.
I'm an empathetic nerd, animated speaker, mindful listener, earnestly passionate, pragmatic idealist, lazy workaholic, budding hedonist, optimistic nihilist, a bit of a logophile and usually brutally honest.
A few years ago I stopped having any qualms about making a fool of myself; it's wonderfully liberatingly joyful.
I find normalcy vastly overrated; I'm a pansexual queer -- meaning I don't particularly care what your bits are, and I don't let mine drive me -- and a novice kinkster.
In the recent past, I toppled a dictator, moved across the world, and now spend quite a bit of time exploring the idiosyncrasies of American/Californian life, a lot of which happens on Fridays and Saturdays.
This seems befitting/descriptive of my life right now: "He attacked everything in life with a mix of extraordinary genius and naive incompetence, and it was often difficult to tell which was which." - Douglas Adams
Thumb war -- haven't lost since I moved to the area!
Citing my sources.
Finding where we parked.
Making silly sounds/voices.
My height, although I'm not *that* large.
Shows/Series: Suits, Heroes, Once Upon A Time. This list is fairly stale since I stopped watching TV (one of the best decisions anyone can make, BTW), although it's still way too easy to hook me in front of a TV. I also love a lot of TED talks.
Movies: Mad Max, Kung Fu Panda, Wreck-it Ralph, The Life of Brian, Paul, Red, Law Abiding Citizen, Fight Club, movies by Quentin Tarantino (Pulp Fiction, Kill Bill, et al), V For Vendetta, The Matrix.
Music: Mostly rock-ish, including (in no particular order): Queen, Muse, Explosions in the Sky, Parov Stelar, Pink Floyd, The Beatles, Tenacious D, The Blues Brothers, Barenaked Ladies. Also, Daft Punk, for making a movie out of an album (Interstella 5555, with those smurf-coloured people you've been wondering about).
Food: Almost anything, but not a lot of seafood. All-time favourite: Koshary!
